today. look what is happening at duke. they're trading down half a percent. in their earnings they talked about taking one-time charges, $295 million to retire the crystal river nuclear power plant and a hit that they will stop the process of building a new nuclear plant, i think in levoy county, florida. duke energy, their earnings fell about 24% of those one-time charges but revenue at duke was up in the last quarter, up 64% to 5.8 billion. you might see a bargain here with duke. back to you. dennis: thank you very much, adam. lori: the boom in the brics come and gone largely compared to the s&p 500. china, russia, brazil and india have all fallen flat since january. my next guest says darlings of yesteryear may have a place in your portfolio. we have paul christopher, chief international strategist at wells fargo. thanks for joining us. after so many years of strength, emerging markets were the go-to
1:33 pm
investment. are we starting to see the other shoe now beginning to fall? >> i wouldn't call it the other shoe. it is a long journey and the shoe will fall in both directions over the course of that span. these are countries that still have very strong growth profiles into the future and we think long-term investors should exploit that. the problem is, it's not going to be one directional move. lori: we know obviously the u.s. stock market has been on a tear but these markets, these stock markets, have been underperforming and it is due to i'm balances. whether it is inflation in its banking industry and some other factors too, correct? >> that's right. these countries will grow in a very unbalanced way. it is a little bit like going to your exercise therapist and she tells you well, you have developed this set of muscles really well but the ones that support on the other side, those are a little bit weak. these countries have grown enormously through trade. now what they need to do is build up the domestic
1:34 pm
economieses to build more balance. that is about what they are to do. lori: sorry to cut you off, if you're seeing diminishing exports, how do you organically grow your domestic economy in these nations? >> well the fact is, most of them, china is a exception, big exception, most of them already have pretty strong domestic sectors. it is just a question of channeling the credit more efficiently, more effectively, more profitably for banks. lori: so is that just a situation of lowering interest rates when you say channeling credit? >> it is going to mean lots of changes, including regulatory changes. how the government affects banks decisions to channel credit. and it is going to mean in some cases some banks will have to be consolidated. some banks will have to go out of business in order to rationalize the system. lori: what about the central banking climate? we know the federal reserve here in the u.s. is doing this debate on tapering. it will probably happen before the end of the year. if you're limiting liquidity a lot of investment dollars will cease to be invested in emerging markets.
1:35 pm
will that be an issue for these emerging market economies? >> yes, it will be, you're absolutely right. as yields rise in this country the risk/reward that u.s. investors see overseas is going to change the u.s. will look relatively more attractive. but that is probably i think a short-term solution or a short-term view because as these countries implement their reforms and things get better there, then yields will rise there again as well as the opportunities return and investors will have a tendency to once again balance their portfolios between the u.s. and overseas. lori: okay. so then going forward here for the medium term if you will, what does that balance look like, domestic versus overseas? >> well it depend a lot upon the investor's risk tolerance and horizon but we have allocations recommended for investors overseas anywhere from about 10% international, all the way up to 35% for the most aggressive investors. we think really that the u.s. investor needs to diversify somewhat out of dollars. still have a home bias but
1:36 pm
diversify overseas. lori: and we're talking about the "bric" nations here. any emerging markets outside of those you find particularly interesting? >> yeah, we think that not right now is a good time to focus less on the "brics" and move behind the brickses to foes countries that we find selectively interesting from a growth perspective and export perspective and generally a credit perspective. south korea is one that we like a lot. you will say, oh, my goodness, that is very close to china. that's true. it is also very close to the hearts of u.s. consumers who are as a group strengthening their purchases today. lori: interesting analysis. paul christopher, thank you so much. dennis: succession fever is heating up at goldman sachs. charlie gasparino is here with exclusive details coming up. lori: but first fed speakpalooza. all week we've been hearing from the fed big guns. moments away fed cleveland president weighs in.

lori? lori: so preplanned. peter barnes, thank you, the way we hear from these fed firms. dennis: yes, all orchestrated. let's talk about succession. succession fever at goldman sachs as the number two guy gary cone is asking for more media attention. charlie gasparino, senior correspondent and author of "circle of friends," joins us for exclusive details. >> gary cohn is number two. he wants to be number one. he is teed off blankfein got all -@the publicity following gay rights, blankfein did something very unusual for a wall street ceo. came out very heavily in favor of gay rights. got lots of publicity. cohn is essentially asking for publicity. he is demanding media attention. more interviews with friendly reporters. this is kind of an interesting battle inside the place because it says something about succession. gary cohn wants to be number one. how do you be number one? you have to be in front of people. he is not coming in front of me.
1:43 pm
he is going in front of friendly reporters. this is what is going on inside goldman sachs. it is clearly a battle for attention. gary cohn is demanding more of it. he is demanding more media time. this is interesting thing. they are addressing incoming troops, interns and first year associates. gary cohn got the first year associates. blankfein got the interns. at love people inside goldman sachs says gary is flexing his muscles. dennis: that is a lot of tea leaves. >> i do this all day. usually my tea leaf reading is pretty good. dennis: is he making a mistake, going to ask for media attention instead of doing stuff that makes media attention? >> i can't believe you asked that. that is a good question. i'm only kidding. [laughing] lori: unfriendly reporter. >> yeah, you would think that it would be nice take, pride in new initiatives to make, build goldman's balance sheet or
1:44 pm
restructure the firm. but you know i'll tell you goldman is kind afttr weird place. i think they have the structure down. i don't think there is really much to do to see how that structure they have which is, kind of a you know, a trading shop. you can't proprietary trade but you can trade in terms of taking positions with your customers, still allowed under the volcker rule and do high-priced investment banks deals. that is the structure. they have to figure out how the structure fits into the regulatory environment which isn't totally set yet. if you don't have much to do, what do you do other than that? well you go out and basically talk to the press. you talk to friendly reporters and you basically demand these little things. you will see commercials probably with gary cohn. you will see when there's a speech to be made before an analyst group, gary cohn will go out there. lori: why isn't time for blankfein to step up? do we think he is going anywhere soon, blankfein? >> anytime soon is sort of -- lori: i left it.
1:45 pm
but he hasn't said i'm retiring yet. >> quite the opposite. he has grown a beard and he's a crusader for gay rights and all these social, pc, kind of social causes which you know gets him very good media play. i, it seems like he will be there for at least the next year. clearly this guy is in, you know what it is interesting, when i spoke with some young guys, the young people that are now working at goldman, when they saw blankfein and then saw cohn's resume' up against blankfein, they were wondering why blankfein wasn't ceo. he has more experience on paper. dennis: gary cohn would be ceo? is he clear heir apparent or is this still a race? is this guy -- >> there are investment bankers, michael evans a lot of people talk about. i think that gary cohn is the -- dennis: front-runner but it is not over. >> one of the ways you become the frontrunner i believe, do what he is demanding to be done.

1:48 pm
the doldrums of summer. what do you think the next catalyst to get people back into the market to make firm decisions? >> that will be difficult to say because we've already had quite a run. we have uncertainty looming over us and really upcoming budget decisions. that will be a concern too. the dollar is one thing i point out that is interesting. based on what we saw yesterday and improvement in budget deficit and big pullback in the dollar that obviously drives exports. the dollar hitting new lows particularly against the yen and the pound. that looks to have the potential to extend i think in the days ahead. that is something that investors can watch as being important. lori: very good. mark newton, thanks so much. >> my pleasure. dennis: cutting the cord. it is cable television's arch nemesis and it is on the rise. look at this. paid tv subscriber growth down 360,000 subscribers. net-net down that much over the past year. that is not a huge falloff but cable companies should take note and cable has been hit harder than satellite tv and video

1:59 pm
absolutely thank goodness. mrs. villain and i are planning our... you scare me. and i like it. let's go what's in your wallet? ashley: welcome back, everybody, i'm ashley webster. tracy: i'm tracy byrnes. stocks trying to fight back to avoided the third down day in a week. the dow is down 55 points. top market strategist christopher zook will tell us what investors are paying too little attention to right now. ashley: warnings from the fallout of eliminating freddie mac and fannie mae. one person says it will make it harder for americans to get loans. tracy: why automakers went southbound to steer clear of u.s. unions and unions are showing up with so-called big promises. we'll look at that ahead. top. hour now, time for stocks, the dow is down i should say 52
2:00 pm
points. adam shapiro on the floor of the exchange. hey, adam. >> hey, tracy. you know all three indices are down. dow is down 52 points. nasdaq is down. almost 14 points. for the dow and s&p this is now three days in a row they have been down and this is not good news for some investors. we heard a lot of people down here talking about a 4 to 8% correction but this would be the first time in almost two months we've seen this kind of a losing streak with the s&p. now let's talk about some stocks which are taking hits especially solar energy stocks. first solar had their earnings out yesterday and they missed big-time. you can see they are down. in fact they lead the s&p down as far as losers today. they're down 13 1/2%. ja solar is down 8%. treena solar down 8%. youngly green energy down 5% and sun power down roughly 12%. first solar took a big hit.
2:01 pm
they missed on revenue and earnings. back to you. >> that will do it. adam shapiro, we'll see you in 15 minutes. ashley: warmer than expected wet they are is sending nat-gas futures to a five-month low. phil flynn in the trading pits of the cme with more on that and all other good stuff on oil and gold. phil? >> when it is september and august, this is what you get. power generation in the united states has fallen 10.8% by a year ago according to the edison electric institute. 22% in the midwest. nobody is turning on their air conditioners. that is really pushing this market into the lows. take a look at crude oil, getting a big break there as well, being driven mainly by gasoline futures. gasoline is getting hammered right now as u.s. refiners are producing gasoline at a near-record pace this week. we're producing more gasoline than we're going to use. we better start exporting the market pretty quickly, otherwise we'll have a lot of extra gasoline.
2:02 pm
sharply lower prices at pump. look at gold, you can't keep the goldmarkket down every day. we're back up. the story today on the goldmarkket is strong physical demand from china. the physical market is getting very, very tight right now. it's a disconnect with the financial side of gold today the physical side is wing and bringing gold back up. back to you. ashley: phil flynn of price futures group, thank you so much. >> thank you. tracy: speaking of gold the precious metal isn't doing too well this year, down 23% as we were talking about. shares of gold mining stocks are actually doing worse. they are down more than 45% year-to-date but our next guest, believe it or not, says this could be a buying opportunity. joining us now, christopher zook, chairman and chief investment officer at caz investments. i love the name of your firm, sir. >> thank you. tracy: i believe they're your initials, right? >> that's a good guess. tracy: before we go into
2:03 pm
anything. we mentioned miners. we have to talk about the gold mining stocks. this is a sector where you said you would wait for a pullback an hop right in but looks like there's a bill pullback. would you hop in now? >> we think from here we'll see a little more retracement of the gains we've seen over the last three weeks. off the lows these stocks are up 25 to 30% depending on the name and we think that will probably consolidate a little bit. but as you pointed out, these stocks are down anywhere 40, to 60, 70% in some cases from where they were just this year. in some cases they're down almost 80% from where they were at the highs. valuations are extremely good. it is cheaper in a lot of names to mine on the floor of the new york stock exchange than it is to go out and create a physical mine. so these valuations are very compelling. >> yeah, i bet. i love this other actually investment tip from you. you're saying short small caps. russell 2,000 has had a serious run. so you're saying short the small cap stocks compared to large
2:04 pm
caps. are you shorting russell say, etf? >> you can use the etf or use the futures. just totally depends on somebody's situation. but if you look at the gap between the outperformance of small cap stocks which have been on fire compared to the s&p 500, we believe that is going to compress and that will come back to more normalized levels, regression to the mean, if you will, particularly if we see pullback. we think small cap stocks will go down much more than the s&p will over that same period. tracy: that whole high beta thing. talk about the market coming down now. when are you anticipating that? i know a bunch of things you think investors just aren't paying enough attention to. >> there are a lot of things investors are not wanting to accept as reality and that is that the economy is shing. we're not seeing the growth that we should be at this point. we do have several catalysts here in the next couple months that could potentially grab investor's attention. could be china. could be chicago. it could be more debate about the budget and the debt ceiling,
2:05 pm
et cetera. we're facing sent as one of the guests said a few minutes ago, we're facing september in front of us and of course october is close behind. we think it is time for the market to pull back. our favorite addage, sell when you can, not when you have to. tracy: i feel like the market is numb to that stuff. people say, yeah, whatever, they will figure it out at the final hour anyway. >> they probably will. the reality is that when they get close to that final hour it creates anxiety. when you have anxiety in markets people don't like that. they tend to sell first and ask questions later. they probably will come up to some agreement but i really don't think anybody wants to listen to all of that bickering again and feel great about going out and buying stocks. tracy: christopher, the vix is certainly moving today to your point about volatility. we're starting to see more and more of it. so to your advice, sell when you can, not when you have to,
2:06 pm
volatility creates selling opportunities as well, doesn't it? >> absolutely does. we don't have to be selling everything that we have. but we should be scaling out of positions particularly companies that are overvalued. bottom line is, valuations still matter and we have to sit there and look, you know, from this point forward, is this a good investment? if it's not, let's sell some or sell all of it or at least put a hedge of some kind in place to protect these wonderful gains we've had so far this year. tracy: you're absolutely right. before i let you go, i have to ask you about your bet on tapering. charles evans yesterday looking at september from the fed. where are you placing your bet? >> right now we would place the bet on basically a tapering of roughly a third of the monthly purchases that they do. the market's had a great run. people are probably expecting some kind of tapering. if they don't give any tapering at all the market rallies pretty substantially. unfortunately it is setting
2:07 pm
themselves up for more difficult time later to exit from the tapering activity. why not now. take some off. see how market reacts. see how the economy reacts. start the process. tracy: a third in sent. we'll have you back and hold you to it. christopher zook with caz investments. >> thank you very much. ashley: more people are saying october now. tracy: right. ashley: we'll see. we'll know soon enough. coming up, outdoor fun, that's always a good time, boosting one american company's bottom line as well. jeff flock is live with a look at johnson outdoors. is that jeff there? go, jeff, go. tracy: what a day he has had, i swear. united auto workers trying to borrow from germany to boost its membership down south but is this going to work? we'll check on oil and how it is trading as we head out to break. we're down slightly. $104.40 a barrel. we'll be right back.

2:12 pm
this one. it hit us a little bit but now people are starting to come out of it. they have have pent up buying habits and people just really, you know, feel like they need to have personal time again as a family and for themselves. >> as we said, maybe as we look over here, you've got other fishermen over here also in these fishing kayaks. these are guys that love to fish and actually they can get places where they can not otherwise get in a boat. this is kind of shallow where we are right now. so they have the ability to go places that they have can't go with a fishing kayak. dave, almost also in an interesting one right here. this is a neki. you also make this and old town canoes. a lot of freight american brands here. what is the cool thing about this one? >> that boat is for somebody looking for something a little different. you don't want to fish. you maybe want to get a workout. do an overnight camping trip. that person wants to paddle more effectively and quicker on the water. it's a much longer boat, a
2:13 pm
little narrower. you have the enclosed cockpit area as well. >> what they have done, they have taken the kayak, used to be they were performance kayaks or recreational kayaks. this is somewhere in between. somebody like me who likes to get out there but really not a real expert has something, this is about a thousand bucks. 1100 bucks. >> exactly. ashley: great stuff, jeff. you look very home on the water. next time, get back there, hope a fish is on the end. line. tracy: i would so fall over if i caught a fish standing, you know that, right? ashley: that would be good television. tracy: i need locks on your ankles or something. ashley: not good. go to the bottom. tracy: we have to make some money now before i tell more of my clumsy stories. charles is taking a look at a ahead of tomorrow's earnings. >> i would have fallen over trying to stand up in anything. you row out and then you stand up? you got to be kidding me.

someone. even without any of that, i think it's a buy here. they report before the open. but i do say, beware it will be extraordinarily volatile. ashley: interesting. the economist compares the invention of 3-d to the invention of the steam engine. >> i don't know why, i don't know why. we used to go crazy back in the day, every new acronym came out of silicon valley that was it, you know. i don't see why there is not the same sort of enthusiasm from this. everything from a human ear to an airplane. tracy: because it's all about preservation of as opposed to appreciation. people just want to hold their money and if buying proctor & gamble -- i think so. i really do. charles payne, you have to convince them otherwise. >> see ya. we'll have something to talk about tomorrow one way or the other. ashley: that's true. we'll see what happens. charles, thank you. quarter past the hour. time to check on these markets again. adam shapiro on the floor of the new york stock exchange. adam. >> we're still going down with the arrows. the dow is down 51 points.

2:23 pm
joining us, susan wachter, professor of real estate at the university of pennsylvania's wharton school. and susan, thank you so much for joining us. it seems to make sense to me. you take this out of the hands of the government agencies, freddie and fannie, prices are going to go up ultimately for the consumer, right? >> absolutely. of course it does depend how you restructure and if we're simply going to do away with fannie and freddie with no alternative that would have significant negative impacts, bringing the recovery down, reverse the recovery without a doubt, threaten the overall economic recovery. ashley: there are a couple of business out there. house republican bill basically privatizes the mortgage market whereas a bipartisan plan in the senate which kind of has a more limited government role in, you know, insuring these securities. what do you think is the best approach? >> well i think there is consensus across the spectrum that some kind of a government
2:24 pm
backstop will be necessary for, going forward, but fannie and freddie do need to be replaced and that certainly is my view as well but some kind after backstop, an explicit backstop, that is limited with private capital in front of the backstop. all of that i think is absolutely required. but the difference between the two bills is the first bill basically, even though it is not its intention basically would eliminate the 30-year mortgage except as a niche product. we would be in a bank-led adjustable rate mortgage world. banks would not originating fixed-rate mortgages. borrowers would not have the certainty going forward, that interest rates would not rise on their mortgages, despite the fact of course that interest rates are likely to rise and in that world. we very well could have not only borrowers in trouble but economy in trouble with a spike in interest rates because mortgages become unaffordable. ashley: that is, what could be the ultimate impact here for the
2:25 pm
consumer that is looking for a mortgage? does it mean a bigger down payment? does it mean you have to have a higher credit score? once you get the private sector more involved they will want more guaranties. >> the interesting thing right now even though we have the federal government basically guaranteeing all mortgages, down payment and mortgage payment requirements are pretty stiff, at least historically. we had a private market where we had race to the bottom where, in fact, private suppliers of mortgages were offering easier terms over time. so i think again there is consensus that we need some kind of rules of the road so that private capital will know whether investors are putting in place today will not run into a crisis tomorrow by irresponsible lending practices in the future. so all of that is to be discussed and to be determined. the corker-warner approach is one approach out there.
2:26 pm
it is bipartisan. the president put down a marker yesterday that he is in support of something that may go down similar lines if not exactly those lines. we need to move pretty quickly though because we're in a world although housing is contributing now to recovery, things could reverse if indeed we don't replace fannie and freddie carefully. ashley: that's true. the president said today in an event with zillow, the housing company, that he would like to see something in place by the end of the year. i mean does that seem overly optimistic? there are others out there that say to get to a final compromise could take years. what do you think? >> it should not take years. i don't think it can take years. i think we need to move more expeditiously than that because the markets themselves are beginning to erode. fannie, freddie, itself, some of its systems are getting old. i don't think we have years. we may have a year or two. so yes, i think it is doable within a year, perhaps realistically, early 2015 is a
2:27 pm
point of time, hopefully we can come together on this. ashley: on another issue, susan, quickly the banks are benefiting from a lot of cheap money but they haven't been passing it on. do you think they overreacted a little bit to what we just came out of and we need to loosen up standards to get more loans and mortgages approved? >> yes, i do. i think that is happening, it will happen and part of it was simply constraints. the banks were overwhelmed. but indeed as the overall recovery gains strength, housing recovery gains strength, i think there should be and will be more confidence and terms will ease. i think that should happen. ashley: very good. so the housing recovery has been a little tepid but you feel it is on solid ground? >> absolutely. recover are is in place, continuing strengthening an contributing to the overall economy. ashley: sound good to me. a good place to leave it. susan wachter, professor at the wharton school. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. tracy: this falls in the things that make you go, hmmm,

remains on that path than i would be prepared to scale back the monthly pace of asset purchases. the chicago fed bank president said he would not rule out the said pulling back with the meeting at september but to make similar comments yesterday one said tapering is inevitable. >> does said cannot continue the fed. >> cannot continue with this quantitative easing much longer is what he said. so phasing it out over the next year makes sense because it doesn't really have a huge effect on the economy. that we did not get a big spurt of growth from adopting this policy.
